SUNDERLAND, ENGLAND – DECEMBER 08: Fernando Torres of Chelsea celebrates scoring his second goal from the penalty spot during the Barclays Premier League match between Sunderland and Chelsea at Stadium of Light on December 8, 2012 in Sunderland, England.

Chelsea picked up their first Premier League win under Rafa Benitez as we beat Sunderland 3-1 with two goals (including his first ever penalty in this country) from Fernando Torres and Juan Mata.

The difference between this game and last week is that Chelsea took their chances to go in 2-0 at half time and with an early third goal in the second half, killed the game off  despite Sunderland’s consolation from Adam Johnson.

A better Chelsea performance again from an unchanged side from midweek. With Juan Mata pulling the strings with Eden Hazard, Chelsea looked in control of this one from the outset.

Sunderland came back into it for a spell in the first half and in the second half but by that time, the game was over.

So it’s a good performance, three much needed points and a week away in Japan to hopefully bring everyone together even more and a chance for Benitez to work hard to get his ideas across.

What did you people think of the game or your reaction to our first win in a while in the Premier League?

Carefree &  KTBFFH!
